Meningitis: It is unlikely for you to have meningitis. Your neck pain may be due to other reasons.

Unlikely: Patients with bacterial meningitis are usually very sick and rapidly worsen without hospitalization and IV antibiotic treatment. Persons with autoimmune disease on nonsteroidal antiinflammatory agents can get drug induced meningitis.

Not likely: Your symptoms could be due to multiple potential causes. But meningitis is not likely. These kids of symptoms can be due to stress, neck strain, the flu or even the weather changing. If your symptoms persist or worsen, get checked out.
